case: case marking

case marks mostly prepositions in prepositional phrases. Prepositions are considered dependents of the noun whose case value they govern. The case relation aims at providing a uniform analysis of prepositions and case in morphologically rich languages.

Sie stehen an der Straße . \n They stand on the street .
case(Straße, an)
Sie warten auf den Bus . \n They wait for the bus .
case(Bus, auf)

case is also used to mark the comparative marker in comparative constructions that involve noun phrases, prepositional phrases, or adjectives.

Der Bus ist schneller als die Straßenbahn . \n The bus is faster than the tram .
case(Straßenbahn, als)
Das sieht alles andere als einfach aus . \n This looks anything but simple .
case(einfach, als)
